I headed up to my parent's house on Saturday to pick blueberries. They have a single massive blueberry bush in their back yard; it must be 8 or 10 feet tall. It produces a ton of berries each year. They're tiny, like wild blueberries, and very flavorful. They're great for cooking. I try to make the pilgrimage for Newbury blueberries every year.
My mother and I spent part of the early afternoon picking berries. I brought home over ten cups of them. Woot! I can make lots of blueberry cakes and muffins from that. After picking over the berries a few times, I spread them out on cloth-lined cookie sheets and froze them. Once they're frozen, I stored them in Ziploc bags. I'm all set for better baking weather (hmmm... maybe tonight!).
